Questions like this have been asked before but the solutions don't really pertain to my case/aren't very clear to me. Screenshot of my current partitions:
I want to have a dual-boot system with Windows (on C drive) and Linux (Fedora). I want to merge the free space (green - 97.65 GB - in secondary partition) and unallocated space (9 MB) to get a net amount of unallocated space to install Fedora on (Fedora clearly mentions it in their documentation that they need unallocated space to be installed on). I have come across two 3rd party software that might be able to do the job: AOMEI Partition Assistant and EaseUS Partition Master.
The AOMEI software shows both the spaces as unallocated. There is an option to create new partition and specify unallocated space before or after the new partition:
Should I set either of those to 97.65 GB? Or, merge the two spaces (97.65 GB and 9 MB) with the C drive and then create unallocated space from it. (Can we do that?) Note: C is a primary partition.
EaseUS doesn't provide me the option to merge the free space (green) with C drive.
I'm in a fix. How should I go about doing what I desire?
